Apparently what makes a politic an hot is straight-talk.New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who’s made a name for himself with his straight talk, beat out President Obama in a Quinnipac poll that asked American voters rate their feelings about politician.
Christie scored 57 degrees, topping President Obama by a full half degree.
Quinnipac notes his heat might have been higher (or lower, depending!) were it not for the fact only 55% of American voters don’t yet know enough about Christie to form an opinion.
Christie didn’t merit the tops marks however. The hottest title belongs to Michelle Obama (someone alert Rush Limbaugh) who scored 60.1 degrees. The second hottest was Bill Clinton at 59.2. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, clocked in at 38.2.
